Yes, yes.  That doesn't answer my question.  Why is linear size the 
important metric there and not angular size?

For the specific examples of TV and jumbotron, angular size seems like a 
much more desirable measure than physical size.  A viewer doesn't care 
that the jumbotron is 100x bigger if it's also 100x further away.
